hello monday: vol. 3

Hello, Monday. I've been doing some thinking on discipline.

We're just a couple of weeks into this new year and, according to statistics, most people who made resolutions or goals will abandon them in about four weeks time. At least I think that's the stat — middle of February or so, and our resolve and willpower fails and we go back to old habits until January 1st rolls around again and we resolve anew.

Hello Monday. I went to see a movie on Friday.

You've probably heard of it — the one that depicts the life of P.T. Barnum and how his circus began. Critics have heralded it as spectacular entertainment, a must-see, and more.

How a Monthly Duty Day Can Simplify Your Life

Over the last couple of years, I've been horrible about doing anything with the thousands of photos sitting on phone and hard drive.

It's almost a running joke amongst my friends that about once a year, I realize I've done nothing except Instagram a few photos over the last 12 months and countless others are just sitting on my phone or hard drive collecting virtual dust. So once a year, I'll sit down and have an epic culling and editing session and upload literally an entire year's worth of photos to Facebook, vowing this is the last time I'll do something like this.

And 9-12 months later, the process repeats itself.
